Our family embarked on one final summer vacation before the beginning of school. This vacation involved no electricity (which means no AC and no refrigerator) and was only accessible via a kayak. One year ago, the thought of it would have been quickly dismissed. This year, though, for whatever reason – it was viewed as a grand adventure by all of us! And, after having a wonderful, grand time on this adventure – I’d say it was well worth it. Enjoy our family picture.
(And just in case you are wondering, Dean and I are standing in the muckiest muck I’ve even been in, and lost my shoes in twice and was by far the yuckiest yuck I’ve had the pleasure of standing in. BUT you can’t tell that from those smiles!!).
